With LG stating that they human eye could see quality up to 437 ppi, I guess the Naysayer from ZDNet is incorrect. I guess you don't need bionic eyes to view a display at 400 ppi after all Mr. Kingsley-Hughes. I'll go with the facts on this one instead of someone's opinion.

Although 400 ppi may sound high, maybe Apple wants to be able to project it for business presentations like one of their patents illustrated.

If you're projecting slides or graphics, maybe a higher pixel count matters.

It's also a bragging rights thing to have quality others can't match. It could be for when you pinch and zoom into a picture for fine details. It could be for superior gaming too.

If Apple is requesting it, it's for a damn good reason.

It's insanely high, but that's Apple for you.
